Ray Charles – Ballad In Blue


Ray Charles was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer who has won 17 Grammy awards. He was often referred to as “The Genius”, as he pioneered the soul music genre during the 1950s by combining blues, rhythm and blues, and gospel styles into the music he recorded. He also contributed to the integration of country music, rhythm and blues, and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records. While he was with ABC, Charles became one of the first black musicians to be granted artistic control by a mainstream record company. Ballad in Blue (originally titled Blues for Lovers) is a 1964 film starring himself, and this soundtrack album contains the following songs:
